I’m gushing over her terrace (above), as shown by Architectural Digest this month. I’m a huge fan of rattan seating, it reminds me of my Grandfather’s breakfast table in his New York kitchen. He would shuffle into the kitchen in the wee hours of the morning in his bathrobe and slippers beckoned by his habitual breakfast, one that was routinely prepared the night prior. He was also surrounded by terra cotta planters like the above, full of geraniums he would nurture.
